3 Hair Treatments For Dry Hair That Might Surprise You
Not everyone knows this but using too much shampoo or using the wrong shampoo can cause dry hair. Shampoo is a soap is designed to pull out the oils and get things clean, if you use it too much it will pull out all of your natural oils and you can end up with dry hair. We have heard of stories of people who are so frustrated with their dry hair they were shampooing it day and night and could not figure out why it was not getting better. All they were doing, unfortunately, was make the situation worse.
If you use a blow dryer, straightening iron and other hot products like hot rollers every single day this will stress and eventually dry out your hair. This can leave it feeling brittle and lifeless. We know that you are going to want to still style you hair so you can still help out your hair. Make sure when you are getting ready for work in the morning that you are gentle to your hair while styling it. Do not pull on your hair or tug on it using the brush or your hand, this will cause further damage. If you can alternate days between the days that you blow dry and days that your put it in another style you can give your hair a chance to recover. If you brush your hair when it is wet you can cause further damage, wait until your hair is dry to brush it or use a comb while it is wet.
